Maruti Suzuki Gypsy retires in India

- Maruti Suzuki discontinues Gypsy after a 33-year legacy

- Dealers have officially stopped accepting bookings for the SUV

- Does not meet new crash test norms and upcoming BS6 emission regulations 

Maruti Suzuki has decided to ring down the curtain for the Gypsy SUV in India. First introduced in India in 1985, the Gypsy has been one of the longest production model in the country. Although the vehicle was available on a made-to-order basis, the Maruti Suzuki dealers have officially stopped accepting bookings for the SUV. The vehicle, in its current form, does not meet the new crash test norms as well as the upcoming BS6 emission regulations. 

Maruti Suzuki Gypsy has been popular among enthusiasts due to its strong off-roading prowess and an optional AWD layout. Having served the Indian Army for years, the Gypsy has also been a popular choice in the Indian rally scene. In its latest form, the Gypsy came with a 1.3-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 80bhp at 6000rpm and 103Nm of peak torque at 4500rpm. The engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The SUV was originally launched with a 970cc F10A four-cylinder petrol engine.

There have been rumours claiming that Suzuki is likely to introduce the new generation Jimny in India sometime soon. However, the company is yet to release an official announcement in this regard.
